comment Does anyone work 10 hours shifts as a developer?
I have many friends on a 9/80 schedule like this, mostly defense contractors, and they LOVE the Fridays off--never heard a complaint about the 9th hour before.

comment Is it “normal” for people to not work?
One of my least-favorite interview questions (for a software developer job): How many words per minute do you type?

comment Most regrettable design or programming decision you made?
Stephan, the example shows a glib and inappropriate abuse of the catch-phrase, which was my point. DRY (with its variant OAOO) is also a good principle, but quite separate: c2.com/cgi/wiki?OaooBalancesYagni. However, I cannot find anything anywhere to support your claim that "DRY is a part of YAGNI." Mustard goes well with hotdogs, but that doesn't mean mustard is a part of hotdogs. If you could clarify, perhaps with references, perhaps I will understand.

True for most, but there are also folks who could use a bit less YAGNI. Neither extreme is the best place to be.
